Rise Up and Build: Investing in our children, our church, and our community

The Need

  • Children’s ministries are often cramped, have little room for growth, and present logistical and security challenges.
  • The roof of the existing building is severely deteriorated and beyond repair, resulting in repeated leaking and water damage.
  • The HVAC system serving the sanctuary is undersized, misconfigured, energy inefficient, and well beyond its useful life.

The Vision

Children's Ministry Wing Floor Plan

The Children’s Ministry Wing will accommodate Nursery, Children’s Church, and Tweeners’ classrooms, more than doubling capacity and enhancing security.

  • Construct a new 3,100 sq.ft. Children’s Ministry Wing, more than doubling capacity and  enhancing security. The new wing will enable the expansion of children’s ministries to better serve the families of our growing congregation. 
  • Install a new pitched metal roof that is long-lasting, low-maintenance, eliminates problem areas, and allows greater flexibility in altering interior spaces.
  • Replace the two HVAC units with energy-efficient, low-maintenance heat pumps and air handling units and install WiFi-enabled thermostats.
  • Reduce long-term site development costs by implementing a phased plan for grading, septic, stormwater, and parking that accommodates planned future construction.
